Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jami Brokaw-Matchett, Founder of Awakened Center for a Wholistic Health, located in Albuquerque, NM , USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Awakened is a dream-given form that space could be created in our community that supports an individual’s needs in all aspects of health and wellbeing. A center for WHOListic health. As the founder, I spent the last several years bringing together practitioners who share this dream. We believe that no healing can be complete if only one of those parts is considered. Our goal, as a business, a community, and as individuals, is to heal the whole self, not simply aspects. We achieve this through our diversity of practitioners and their unique and prolific skill sets. We believe that by providing these services, we can make ourselves, our clients, and our community better and healthier for our efforts.
Tell us about yourself
I came to the health and wellness industry over 20 years ago as a massage therapist. I grew my practice into Whole Health Healing through my knowledge and specialties in corrective exercise, holistic and dietary coaching, and post-rehab and injury prevention. I believe that anyone can achieve the health and wellness they desire through the proper prescription of the 4 Doctors, the fundamentals of CHEK practices. I am driven to create a space centered around WHOLE Health Healing comes from many years in the “gym” setting, where I saw just how lacking it was in creating overall health and wellbeing. I wanted to create a space that was safe and comfortable for all. As someone who struggled for many years with weight issues stemming from overstressing my body and creating internal and external body imbalances, I saw how important this space is and how it’s lacking in most facilities. It was from this desire that I found a better way through the teachings of the CHEK Institute; since going back to school in 2014, I have helped facilitate many on their journey to total health and wellbeing. I continue to create WHOLE Health Healing with my clients on a daily basis.
